History of NUsolar

NUsolar was founded in 1997 and raced its first car, SolarCat, in Sunrayce 1999. Since then, the team has built 5 other cars and competed in over 10 solar car races. Our objective is to enhance the education and career preparation for Northwestern students by providing hands-on project management, design, and manufacturing experience in addition to providing an outlet for students to demonstrate their skills and commitment to potential employers. We also promote alternative energy by increasing the “green” energy awareness in the community and demonstrating the feasibility of solar power.
